    just thought I'd post up my cars build and see what you guys think of it. I'd also like to give a big thanks to all my friends (especially you Mike!) who helped make this car what it is!!
    I received the cobra from the original owner with 98k on the clock and pretty much stock besides a cervini hood and freshened up t3650...The modding then began! Car now has
    -5.0 forged stroker motor (have the original motor if anyone's interested)
    -98 cobra intake cams
    -04 cobra heads
    -center clutch
    -SRA out of friends gt
    -4:10's
    -full bolt on's
    -steeda springs
    first two pics are of the car the day I got it, latter are what it looks like now :)

    Looks nice, I've teetered on the idea of a rear wing delete. And I would have to say good move on going back to the stock hood!! Hope your enjoying the 5.0L!

    Looks sexy like normal Dev. My stock hood on your car looks amazing, i'm glad you took it because I am not a fan of the Stalker hood without the full kit.

    Looks really nice with the wing delete man! That 5.0L stroker sounds like a lot of fun :burnout:

    I don't know that I would have smoked the unique 99/01 tails but to everyone their own! :beer:

    Didn't smoke the factories, they're now on a termi in Sweden :)
    Thanks Trent! I must say getting rid of the stalker hood for a stocker gave it a MAJOR face lift lol.
    Had the wing off within the first week of having it, its all about smooth body lines ;) the 5.0 is fun, just need to work out a few things in the tune.

    How would you compare the ride difference between the IRS and solid axle? I'm debating on tossing all the goodies into my IRS or just swapping a solid in. I'd like the weight savings too..

    The sra is a bit bumpier but nothing to noticeable. I have never regretted getting rid of the irs! I think cobra's should have came with a sra from the factory...
    I will try to get some up this weekend:rockon:

    Small cams. Thats why it makes the larger torque numbers but is lacking peak HP for a moderately high compression 5.0. Throw some 106100's at it, long tubes, and a 10" PSR, it would be around 375-380 rwhp but 335-345 torque.
